5 Tips to Dress Up Your Baby for Spring
The changing of seasons from winter to spring not only gives us a wiff of fresh air after long winter bundling, but it also means it’s time to change your baby’s wardrobe.
Winter coats, scarves, warm boots, and knit gloves can finally be put away deep into the closets. Still, don’t get too excited to pull out your baby’s summer outfits. The spring season is a sketchy one. Although it gets warmer out, no one has cancelled windy and rainy days and drastic temperature jumps throughout a day. As a result, parents frequently get lost and find it difficult to decide how to dress up their little bundles of joy for them to feel comfy and cozy.
At Wild Dill baby clothes store, we’ve made a compilation of useful tips on how to make your baby comfortable and stylish during the upcoming spring months.
Spring is a perfect time for layers that you can peel off or add on as temperature shifts throughout a day. When dressing your baby for a walk in the park, start with an organic cotton onesie or a pair of leggings with a cute long-sleeve tee, add layer of pants and a sweatshirt on top. Socks under boots will keep little feet warm in case a baby wants to practice his/her first independent steps on the still chilly ground. In case of unexpected gusts of cold wind, it’s good have a warm blanket or a bunting handy to pop the baby right into it. Keep a raincoat for a toddler at your fingertips, as spring is notorious for its showers. Making sure to check the day’s weather report will help you decide how best to dress your toddler.
When choosing the clothes your toddler will be comfortable in, always go for natural organic materials. At Wild Dill, we have a wide selection of toddler boy organic clothing and toddler girl organic clothing perfect for any weather. Make cotton your fabric of choice. It’s breathable and comfy and won’t cause any sweating and skin irritation. 100% organic cotton, eco baby alpaca, 100% bamboo fiber are the fabrics of your choice this season - very breathable and light-weight, these materials will keep your babies warm and cool when necessary.
Spring is the time to rock some cool hats. Hats are great for when a toddler has to rapidly transition from a warm environment to a cold one and regulate their body temperature fast. Whether it’s a light cotton hat or a cap, your baby will look both stylish and warm, but not too warm. Caps are also great for shielding your toddler from the sun’s rays. Our favorite this season is FORE AXEL & HUDSON BABY GOLFER TODDLER CAP.
Hoodies are simply irreplaceable in spring. Worn over a long or short-sleeve onesie or a tee, depending on the weather, hoodies will keep your baby comfy and cozy no matter what the weather is like.
With the upcoming Easter season spring pastels return to your baby’s wardrobe. Wait to get those Easter toys and Easter baby gifts. It’s time to burst out the sartorial sunshine with some pastel clothing and bright outfits first. Bright colors such as yellow, pink, orange or pastel colors like baby pink or baby blue and purple are all fun colors for spring. Patterns with flowers, fun prints, checked or striped outfits, sailor patterns, animal patterns, cute graphic designs in hues of pink, green, yellow, and brown will cheer up your eye.
The golden rule for dressing up your little loved ones this spring is to choose wisely what your babies will feel comfy in and feel free to experiment with layers and colors to get the ultimate fun out of this transition to summer.
